Alanis Real Estate is truly located at the crossroads of real estate and charity

After all, our slogan is “Giving Back with Every Transaction”.

➡️ We take this motto a step further though. Learn more about our dual passions for giving and real estate below-

For 20+ years our founder created and maximized innovative ways to generate real estate business for REALTORs®. He spent the first half of his career making money and being successful for himself in real estate technology. Now, he wants to give back to the local community by leveraging that experience and success to create a new kind of real estate company. One that puts customers, community, and charity before profits.

➡️ The Alanis Charity Network-

At the core of Alanis Real Estate is the Alanis Charity Network (ACN). Our mission to connect charity and real estate led to the establishment of close relationships with different local charities, not for profit companies, and causes. The ACN is a proprietary network of handpicked organizations chosen by Alanis Real Estate and our clients1. Therefore, we know each charity is efficient and reputable.

The causes in our network range from animal/pet charities to medical advancement research to performing arts, education and homelessness. Don’t see your favorite local charity or cause on our list? Just let us know and we’ll look into adding your favorite local charity or cause. Here’s a quick sample of some of the categories of causes that exist.

➡️ At Alanis Real Estate ALL agents are held to a higher ethical and moral standard-

At Alanis Real Estate, our likeminded agents are hired based on a rigorous set of standards of excellence and integrity. They understand that doing an amazing job for the client, the company and the community is the best reward there can be. After all, we will be assisting you with what may likely be the largest purchase of your entire life.

All Alanis REALTORs® and staff go through a comprehensive training program. This ensures there is no question as to the level of their integrity. Their understanding and adherence to our mission is critical.

Whether you need assistance with: 1) Buying your first home 2) Upgrading to a make room for a growing family or 3) Selling your property as part of a big move cross country, an Alanis Real Estate agent will have the knowledge, integrity and expertise to assist you. The best part of course is that your transaction will result in a substantial donation made on your behalf to your favorite charity.

➡️ The Bottom Line-

The bottom line is that Alanis Real Estate donates 10% of EVERY real estate commission to a charity chosen by our client2. We believe this commitment speaks for itself. Furthermore, the donation is made “on behalf” of the client. Therefore, this means that the client gets credit for the donation. All the well deserved accolades that go along with that recognition are yours. Depending on the size of the donation, the recognition can take many forms. 1) You could receive a certificate of recognition, 2) A plaque on the wall of the charity/organization, 3) Or even a seat at the annual black tie charity ball!

And if that’s not enough, Alanis Real Estate gives 10% of our bottom line to the ACN at the end of each year2! That’s right, 10% of our annual profit also goes back to the ACN. This shows how seriously we take our commitment to the local community, our clients, and charity. Check out the ACN to see a list of each charity/cause and how much money has been donated.

➡️ The State of Charity in the United States-

Would it surprise you to know that the United States consistently ranks in the top 10% of all nations for individual charitable giving? It’s true, we should all be proud to be part of the most giving nation on the planet!
